Subject: [Boost-build] Cannot build boost::serialization for x64 (cross compile)
From: Armin.Pies_at_[hidden]

I use the following parameters for bjam:

release address-model=64 --stagedir=${boostroot.dir}/stage64 stage
link=static runtime-link=shared threading=multi toolset=msvc

The boost build for the serialization library integrates tests calling
"no_std_wstreambuf_pass.exe" or "no_std_locale_pass.exe" which are, of
course, no Win32 applications.
So I cannot run them under Windows XP (Win32) and the build fails.
But I need to build the library to be able to cross-compile our
application for x64.

Is there a switch to skip these tests?
